About The Book

Cranky Chicken and Speedy the worm return in another “sweetly silly” (Kirkus Reviews) illustrated chapter book as Cranky plans a nap and the two friends find a mysterious egg—sure to be beloved by fans of Narwhal and Jelly and The Bad Guys!

Cranky Chicken has no time to play with Speedy the worm because it’s nap time—and it is never a good idea for Cranky to skip a nap. Then, Speedy starts having questions of identity: what does it really mean to be a worm? Can Cranky and Speedy find some answers? Later, Cranky and Speedy discover an egg and have to work together to take care of it. These three new stories about listening, helping our friends, and learning new things will make readers fall even more deeply in love with these delightful BFFs (that is, best feathered friends).
